can I display a list of the tabs in a side pane, so you can switch by selecting from it? Something similar to NERDTree's pane.

I want to be able to toggle it into view, select the tab I want in switch to it.

If it can expand show a list of windows in that pane that you can switch to directly, that will even be better.


No, there is not. There are however a number of plugins to handle tabs and buffers.

Given that you want to see tabs per window, my recommendation would be to have a look at vim-wintabs.

It will also show buffers per window in a line.

On a more general note, I would recommend reading this stackoverflow discussion for an excellent explanation of windows, tabs and buffers and their use in vim.
